Photo Contest #3
I'm back from a one week vacation. No BBT for a week so I let my early 4th place for April go to waste. Above is an image from the trip. First one to identify exactly where this was taken wins photo contest #3 and a $10 transfer the the online site of choice (Limited to FT, PS, or FSL)
I played the riverchasers, and donked it up early getting it all-in preflop with JJ vs. KK. That sounds pretty ugly and it was, but lets just run through it. I had opened 3x from UTG for T150. UTG+1 Jams for about 1.9k. Folds back to me. I can easily let this go, but I started thinking about it. What kind of hands do you jam with there? Nothing I would jam with there, but lets just say 77-AA, AK, AQ or some BS like that. AA & KK seem the least likely of the group, as you would want to raise less for value. Also, this guy was already down to 1.9k early. A bit loose with the chips or what ever. If I call and am wrong, I still have 850 or something and not dead. All this made me feel that it was even more likely that it was a 77-QQ or AK type hand. I felt very priced in. Its not a straight forward play though, and you need to play straight forward early in MTTs so its an interesting hand. I made the call and lost 2/3 of my stack. I would catch AA later and double through for breathing room, and then caught a few medium pots here and there to make the final 2 tables pretty short. From there I folded to the points. Well that's what it looked like. I was just hanging around waiting for some cards to rally with. I did not really think I would make the top 12 when I was last out of 18. I would either catch a few breaks and make the FT, or bounce out early and out of the points. The others dropped, and I was way short and all in with Ten high preflop ahead of a 6 high hand. The river would wash me out with a few points for my efforts.
